Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Film und Fernsehen, Note: 1,3, Universität Siegen, 8 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Robert Wilson wird am 4. Oktober 1941 in Waco (Texas) geborgen. Er studiert Architektur und Malerei am New Yorker Pratt Institute. Nach seinem Abschluss 1965 arbeitet er zunächst als Assistent bei dem Architekten Paolo Soleri in Arizona, wird dann aber Bühnenbildner. Gemeinsam mit Künstlern aus unterschiedlichen Bereichen, darunter der Komponist Philip Glass und die Tänzerin Lucinda Childs, entwickelt er eine experimentelle Form des Theaters, „welche klare Handlungsstrukturen aufgibt, um stattdessen visuelle Effekte in den Vordergrund treten zu lassen, in denen choreographische Stilisierungen sowie Licht- und Tontechniken zum Tragen kommen.“ (Microsoft 2004). 1968 gründet er die Byrd Hoffman School of Byrds in New York City. Außerdem adoptiert er in diesem Jahr einen taubstummen schwarzen Jungen und versucht die Lebenseindrücke dieses Jungen, der weder sprechen noch hören kann, in seinem Stück Deafman Glance (1970) zu verarbeiten. Zu seinen meistgespielten Werken gehört die Oper „Einstein on the Beach“, die erstmals 1976 am Schauspielhaus in Hamburg und anschließend in Venedig, sowie an der Metropolitan Opera in New York inszeniert wurde. Zu seinen aufwendigsten Stücken gehört ganz sicher „The CIVIL warS“, das aus einzelnen Stücken, die in verschiedenen Ländern produziert wurden, besteht.

The Civil Wars Experienced is an exciting new history of the civil wars, which recounts their effects on the 'common people'. This engaging survey throws new light onto a century of violence and political and social upheaval By looking at personal sources such as diaries, petitions, letters and social sources including the press, The Civil War Experienced clearly sets out the true social and cultural effects of the wars on the peoples of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland and how common experiences transcended national and regional boundaries. It ranges widely from the Orkneys to Galway and from Radnorshire to Norfolk. The Civil Wars Experienced explores exactly how far-reaching the changes caused by civil wars actually were for both women and men and carefully assesses individual reactions towards them. For most people fear, familial concerns and material priorities dictated their lives, but for others the civil revolutions provided a positive force for their own spiritual and religious development. By placing the military and political developments of the civil wars in a social context, this book portrays a very different interpretation of a century of regicide and republic.

From forced trusteeships to hostile inter-union raids, american labor has been gripped by a devastating civil war. Steve Early argues that these polices grow from the strategy of labor management collaboration, and must be replaced with a return to rank and file initiative if the labor movement is ever to stem the tide of its long decline.

After the Civil Wars

English Politics and Government in the Reign of Charles II

The first study of Restoration England from the point of view of both rulers and ruled, this volume offers a vital reappraisal of seventeenth century England. The civil wars had a traumatic effect on the English people: memories of bloodshed and destruction and the ultimate horror of the execution of Charles I continued to be invoked for decades afterwards. It is often argued that the political and religious fissures created by the wars divided English society irrevocably, as demonstrated by the later bitter conflict between the Whig and Tory parties. After the Civil Wars proposes instead that although there was political conflict, Charles II's reign was not a continuation of the divisions of the civil wars.

The Civil Wars of Julia Ward Howe

A Biography

This “lively biography” (The New Yorker) is the first to tell the story of Julia Ward Howe as a powerful feminist pioneer. Julia Ward (1819-1910) was an heiress who married a handsome accomplished doctor who worked with the blind and deaf. But Samuel Howe wasted her inheritance, mistreated and belittled her, and tried to stifle her intellect and freedom. Nevertheless Julia persisted and wrote poetry and a mildly shocking sexual novel that was published to good reviews. She also wrote the words to probably the most famous anthem in the country’s history—the Civil War anthem, “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” After Samuel died when she was fifty-one, Julia lived another forty years as a dynamic, tireless, and successful activist for women’s rights, pacifism, and social reform. She became a groundbreaking figure in the abolitionist and suffrage movements, and a successful author and lecturer who fought her own battle for creative freedom and independence. In the “riveting” (The New York Times Book Review), “unfailingly vivid” (The Atlantic) and “invigorating” (O, The Oprah Magazine) The Civil Wars of Julia Ward Howe, esteemed author Elaine Showalter tells the story of Howe’s determined self-creation and brings to life the society she inhabited and the obstacles she overcame. The Civil War challenged nineteenth-century ideas of separate spheres for men and women. In Howe’s case, this transformation led to a rebellion against her marriage. She fought a second Civil War at home and discovered ways to combine domestic chores with creativity and politics, and she helped establish Mother’s Day to honor women and to recruit them to her causes. “A biography with the verve and pace of a delicious novel…Showalter reveals the entwining of Howe’s public and private lives, as she righteously battled her husband and society, and finally saw the glory she always believed she deserved” (The Boston Globe).

This penetrating sociological study of the causes, consequences, and historical meaning of the civil wars in mid- and late-nineteenth century Chile argues that they were abortive bourgeois revolutions fought out among rival segments of Chile's dominant class. Indeed, it concludes that, in general, not only class but also intraclass struggles can be decisive historically, especially at transitional moments. Originally published in 1984.
